Rory gonna win.

If he drives it like this, the rest of the field is battling for 2nd place.

In the interest of only excluding people who are obvious/unfair picks, maybe we could change the list to anyone who's ranked in the top 5 or won a major in the last year.

That at least would allow Sergio back in at next year's US Open

Actually, I guess it makes the most sense to exclude the top 5 sportsbook favorites. That way we can account for both recent performance and proven major champions.

Nah, I almost picked Justin Rose myself. He has like 2 top 5s the 2 times he's played this course.

No screenshots of the pool right now. The app deleted my favorites list TWICE today.

The group of Jason Day, DJ, and Stenson were approach the 17th green with the horn about to blow for darkness. DJ was the only one who hit the green so he putted out and ran to the 18th tee box to hit his drive.

Not 2 minutes later they blew the horn to suspend play due to darkness.

And even after Jason and Henrik hit their tee shots on 18, they were jogging/running to their 2nds. I love that poo poo

Speaking of which...

Apex of 13 feet is obviously funny, but I'm more impressed by the 166 mph ball speed.

After round 1, we had 5 picks in the pool between -2 and Even. After* round 2 though...

Rickie was the overnight leader and I honestly thought he was going to run away with the pool until Hideki lost his GAT drat MIND and birdied 5 out of 6 holes.

Rickie can easily take the pool lead with a good round if Hideki starts the feels the pressure of the lead and drops a round of E or +1, especially since Jason Day is in his pairing.

I've been watching the final group off and on but as I recall, there was a 2 group backup on the par 3 6th so that probably added a solid 30 minutes to their round.

It's a detriment to golf as a whole.

Trying to get in a twilight round and getting stuck behind the high school kids during one of their team events is a nightmare.
